    Welcome all!

    This thread is a duel purpose thread designed to both keep people informed about the progress of the various AI factions as well as recieve feedback and discuss design choices.

    As work has continued I have recieved many questions as to what specific entities will be included, what role they will play, when they will be done, etc. I hope to answer these questions here as well as find options I may not have considered.

    For those who are unaware, the current objective of Serene-Forgeworks is to create multiple AI factions using assets from established Sci-Fi franchises.

    As of this writing, there are a total of five primary factions, five secondary factions, and another three tertiary factions in development. The inclusion of factions into this project is primaryily dependant on varifiiable source material and my ability to translate it into Starmade.

    Primary Factions
    Star Wars - The Old Republic
    Star Trek - Early Federation of Planets
    Halo - UNSC Covenant War Period
    Mass Effect - Systems Alliance
    Gundam - Earth Federation Early Universal Century

    Secondary Factions
    Battlestar Galactica - Colonial Defense Forces First Cylon War
    Warhammer 40K - Imperium of Man Navy
    Starship Troopers - Terran Federation Navy
    Tron - System Monitor Program
    Starfox - Cornerian Defense Fleet

    The contents of the primary factions will be detailed below. The tertiary factions are unlikly to be completed due to lack of canon material and so are not listed. There is also a Nemisis faction which I will not be detailing here.

    As always I will endeavor to upload early releases of each ship individually for anyone who would like to use them.

    DISCLAIMER: All recreations are intended to funtion under AI control for use with the Starmade factions mechanic, while the recreations exteriors will be build as accuratly as possible, they are intended for PVE and as such the interior design is secondary to the performance of the recreation.

    (As a note here, the Geneva class will likely become the base for most of the Alliance ships which is why there will be few other shells until it is done)

    Quite the portfolio you've got there. Beautiful clean style, really great work. Your smaller builds are very impressive for the way you get their shapes just right. Love that Viper in particular.

    Thanks, when the Halo, BSG, and Gundam ships are finally detailed they won't be as smooth but I plan to keep the Mass Effect and Trek ships fairly clean in keeping with their style. As for the smaller builds remember your only seeing the released ones, early attempts at most of them were. . . unsatisfying to say the least.

    Finished the bottom structure of the Miranda
    Adjusted the main systems for better organization
    Added additional armor to main systems
    Replaced the Beam Phasers with C/C Phasers for better canon accuracy and greater damage

    A long overdue redesign of the Connys aft.

    Having developed most of the UFP design elements while working on the Miranda, the rest of the ships in the fleet should be easy to finish (exterior wise anyway). After some updating of Conny and Apollo I'll likely be moving on to the UNSC or ME fleets next.

    Thanks, it's just a matter of time and practice, and then more time, and then more practice, and then rebuilding your ships several times ; )

    Pulled this out of the woodwork a while ago and dusted it off, still need minor tweaks to the hull and then it's on to systems, logic, interior etc. Posted to the dock today, and will probably be back for her soon, whenever I get around to overhauling the Gundam faction.
